A MAN died after plunging more than 30ft from the roof of a warehouse in London's East End believed to have been the scene for all night parties.

Gabriel Bailey, 21, died of head injuries after the fall near the Mildmay Mission Hospital in Shoreditch at 10.30am on August 30.

He had been visiting friends at the warehouse building in Hackney Road after travelling from his home in Kensal Rise, in west London.

Five men, who had all been on the roof, were taken to Stoke Newington police station for statements.

But police stressed there was no evidence to suggest his death was suspicious.

Mr Bailey fell from the roof into the Perseverance Works village of artists' studios at the back. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Squatters moved into the warehouse six weeks ago and had been holding all night parties there, workers from the studios said.
